Here’s How You Can Undelete Files In Windows

It’s easy to undelete files in Windows. The first thing you do is to check the Recycle Bin. More often than not, you’ll be able to find and restore a file from there. Thanks to the Recycle Bin, you can easily undelete files once you realize they weren’t meant to be deleted in the first place.

There’s no doubt that the Recycle Bin helps lessen the chances of losing files. You can always check it before you do anything drastic. However, you do need to know that the Recycle Bin does not keep deleted files forever.

The Recycle Bin does have a capacity limit and, when it’s full, Windows will empty it automatically to reclaim hard drive space. If you regularly have second thoughts about files you’ve deleted, this may cause problems, so if you have a large hard drive with lots of free space, consider increasing the Recycle Bin’s capacity.

Increasing the capacity of the Recycle Bin is a good option especially if you don’t clean it out regularly. That way, you wouldn’t have to worry about the files you’ve deleted. If you have no idea as to how to increase the capacity of the Recycle Bin, here’s how you can do it.

Right-click the Recycle Bin icon and choose Properties. When the dialog box opens, make sure the ‘Custom size’ option is selected and type a larger number in the box next to it. This is measured in megabytes (MB) and 1,000 megabytes is one gigabyte (GB). A number that’s around 10% of your hard drive capacity works well. This works in all versions of Windows and remember that the Recycle Bin will only use this amount of space when it’s full.

Seems pretty easy, right? Even if it’s pretty easy to increase the capacity space of the Recycle Bin, you still need to consider the fact that it will reach the maximum capacity. What that means is that you can’t really rely on the Recycle Bin to keep deleted files. What if it reaches the maximum capacity and it wipes out all your deleted files?

Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo) Enters Final Freeze Ahead of Its April 18th Release

As of Thursday, April 11th, the forthcoming Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo) operating system has entered the last stage of its development process, Final Freeze stage.

The Final Freeze stage is the final step in the development cycle of Ubuntu Linux, meaning that only release-critical bugs that affect the ISO images or the installers will be accepted from here on until the final release. It also means that Release Candidate (RC) images will soon be available for public testing.

“We will shut down cronjobs and spin some RC images late Friday or early Saturday once the archive and proposed-migration have settled a bit, and we expect everyone with a vested interest in a flavour (or two) and a few spare hours here and there to get to testing to make sure we have another uneventful release next week,” said Adam Conrad.

Ubuntu 19.04 arrives on April 18th with GNOME 3.32 and Linux kernel 5.0

The final release of the Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo) operating syste… (read more)

Flatpak Linux App Sandboxing Gets New FUSE-Based System-Wide Installation Method

The Flatpak development team released today a new stable version of their Linux application sandboxing and distribution framework that implements a new major feature around the system-wide installation method.

Flatpak 1.3.2 is now available and it contains a major change in how installation of Flatpak apps is done system-wide as a user. The developers decided to rewrite the setup process of a Flatpak app due to the fact that the previous method caused unnecessary I/O and used more disk space. The new setup process relies on a custom FUSE file system.

“The new setup uses a new custom fuse filesystem which the user writes to, and then when this is done we can safely revoke any access to this from the user, meaning the files can be directly imported into the system repository without needing to make a copy,” explains Alexander Larsson in the GitHub announcement page.

But it appears that there’s also … (read more)
